Re: How to wipe all and install a fresh Dash?

An installer dvd like hexen, slayers or AID is your best bet.

the only real catch is making sure you format to the correct cluster size if you have a large hdd.

there is plenty of guides around.

you wont find coinops on here best to go ask on their forum for help there.

Re: pico psu

yes they do but they are not really up the the current on the 5v line I believe and I have seen people remove caps from the motherboard to reduce load on startup so the psu does not trip out. you also cant wire them in directly as the ps on signals and standby and ps ok voltages are not the same as ...

Re: Help with xbox xecuter 2 mod crash. How can I put it stock ?

I think the passcode in hexen is " A B Y X " that will then allow you to format and do a fresh install with hexen. If it boots the default dashboard then you must not have the bios pointing to an alternate dash to boot to so it boots the default dash instead. You could try flashing a new bios that y...

So, if I have a broken iPod Video 30GB I could repurpose the HDD? Or is that not the right HDD? I also really like this idea!
yip you could do that if it is a hdd model just need to get the correct adaptor it will either be a 1.8" ide (50 pin) or 1.8" ZIF hdd depending on the model of ipod

Re: Need help with Tsop recovery after bad flash..

you don't need a socket if you use a dil32 eeprom or plcc eeprom as you can easily hand solder as stated above by MrMajst3r. For example a AT 29C020 or a 29F002 would work and are easily solderable. you could use a ir window eprom like a 27c2001 (2Mbit ) 27c4001 (4M bit) but you need an external pro...

I have not seen such a guide but something I will say the best thing to do is prep it properly by sanding it or us a plastic etching primer so that the paint will stick.

I see it being a lot easier for them to do this than for the 360 backwards compatibility as it is the same architecture, and built on similar Windows based kernel and DirectX The 360 was really a large step away from the normal windows /pc compatible hardware and it is likely there will be a greater...

Re: ConfigMagic GTS Mod

If in future if the smart guys get Xbox live working then zeroing the HDD key could cause issues as it was part of the algorithm to uniquely define your console. It is not something that is needed these days as most tools set a master unlock code the can unlock the HDD regardless of the user passcod...

You tried all four banks on the 1.1 TSOP.
Yip I did try all banks.

I think a 29 wire mod chip may be the easiest method to recover it unless I can find a dead ver 1.4 to swap tsops over.
